Technology Commercialization

Technology Commercialization

Advancing university research to the global marketplace

Our research programs make the university a leading force of innovation and change – locally, nationally and globally. With a long-term, comprehensive focus on commercialization, the university has built a robust set of resources to take promising discoveries from concept to market. 

Brilliant faculty from 15 colleges and other units around the university are the driving force for nearly 400 invention disclosures each year. This translates into nearly 300 active licenses – technologies invented at Ohio State that are impacting lives around the world.

Our Partners And Resources

Our technology commercialization team is the bridge between research and the market. Ohio State innovators are continually making groundbreaking discoveries in fields that impact the human condition: medicine, manufacturing, logistics, international business, science and technology. Whether licensing a new technology to an existing enterprise or engaging with an Ohio State startup, our team is here to facilitate that process.

The Path to Commercialization

Our team works with hundreds of companies each year – companies ready to take the university’s innovations to market and impact lives. To illustrate our process, we have established a clear commercialization pathway for licensing a university technology.
